  1. Mason Lehman, UCONN, 1/2 (28 -- 45) This is the best wedding gift I've gotten so far!

  3. Immediate Impact Catching Up with David Triplett COLUMBIA MO - There’s a lot of hype surrounding the 2020 Missouri Tigers Football team. With strong pieces coming back at all of the offensive skill positions, it looks like we’re in for a year of shootouts. However, the defense, for all its glaring faults, has some key talent as well. And they’re trying to turn those shootouts into blowouts. I recently caught up with one pivotal member of the defense, David Triplett. Triplett is slated as the #1 Cornerback and is only a True Freshman. Despite being thrust into such an important role, he seems to be keeping his cool confidence. “I’m ready for things to get going. I can’t wait for that first hit so I know it’s football season again. Coach has put a lot of trust in me and I plan to reward that trust with winning plays,” David commented. Landing at Missouri was never a sure bet. Triplett’s recruitment was pretty straightforward, until he changed his mind last second and committed to Missouri. “Yeah, I had given Memphis the strong verbal early in the process. It was close to home and seemed like a good fit, but when an SEC school starts calling, you start answering the phone again. On signing day, Coach vtgorilla called me and asked, ‘Do you wanna be a Tiger with AAC stripes or do you want your stripes to be from the best football conference in the country?’” The YouTube video of his announcement has over 175,000 views, probably all from furious Memphis fans. He teased his announcement with a brutal, “I’m gonna be a Tiger,” before putting on that Mizzou hat. Coach vtgorilla said he was always on the list of targets, but they didn’t chase him 100% until they saw him play in the Tennessee State Championship Game. “It really cemented how bad we needed him. To know he could come in and start this year changed everything. We threw the house at him and I don’t think Memphis saw it coming.” The plan was for him to start this year all along, but he really locked it up in summer camp. Like all freshmen, Coach vtgorilla started him last on the depth chart. But it was obvious he was the best talent from the first practice. “He was outworking the other players in the position drills, even the upperclassmen. Then, obviously, he was the star of our first scrimmage, with two interceptions, a sack, and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.” Most freshmen don’t get a chance to start at Missouri, or anywhere in the country. But it happened here last year as well. Nathan Coleman stepped into the locker room as the starting running back in 2019 and had a pretty successful year. I asked David if he’s spoken to Nathan Coleman at all about the experience. “Yeah coach had us sit down on day one. We just talked about the speed of the game and what to expect from college ball. We play each other in Madden a lot...he uses it to teach me some of the more complex offensive formations and strategies.” Article by James Barley, Missouri Junior, Sports Marketing Major
  4. Go Tigers
  5. How bracket is your busted?

  6. QB Aiden Higgins 6-1 231 Sr West Central (Hartford, SD) 3.5 of 3.5 [Scrambling]QB Julius Minnow 6-2 226 Jr Quinter (Quinter, KS) 3.0 of 4.0 [Pocket]QB Rahim Murrell 6-2 220 (Jr) Moberly Area Community College (Moberly MO) 3.5 of 4.5 [Pocket] They all look like viable starters. Rahim with the most talent and polish, but Higgins and Minnow already have knowledge of the system and familiarity with the receiving corps. It sounds like there's a QB battle brewing in Manhattan. How is coach Haff planning to split reps in summer camp?
  7. vtgorilla confirms
  8. Couldn't stand the challenge of the SEC?
  9. SEC! SEC! SEC! But really I'm angry I'll have to play Soluna now.
  10. The two JUCO TEs I crooted last year are the only TEs to win SEC awards. Fuck you, Dillon Scott.
  11. Having lost to all 3 of LSU, Tenn, and Illinois, I can assure you all that they are all qualified.
  12. Spurlock with the clutch move of the day. Stealing that game winning drive away. GG as always storm, prepare to eat shit in 2020.
  13. Missouri got an award! Pretty sure we almost went the entire season without a selection. Glad to sneak one in to boost morale so we can annihilate Kansas this week.
  14. "a win over Mizzou" This is how you identify low quality media pieces.
  15. Usually alien's only full of salt when he wins. You must have really gotten to him this time.
